While President Donald Trump is being criticized for his response to the suspected white supremacist terror attack in Charlottesville, Minnesota's Republicans have been quick to condemn the violence.
Heather Heyer, 32, was counter-protesting the "Unite the Right" rally in Virginia when a car plowed through the crowd, killing her and injuring 19 others.
The driver, 20-year-old Kentuckian James Alex Fields, has been charged with murder, hit and run and malicious wounding. The Lexington Herald Reader reports he had an "infatuation" with Nazis and Adolf Hitler.
Violent clashes broke out as white nationalist, neo-Nazi, armed militia, Ku Klux Klan and other alt-right groups were met by counter-protesters. The New York Times reports that the rally was dispersing when the car rammed into the crowd of protesters.
Two Virginia police officers monitoring the events from above also died when their helicopter crashed.
The BBC reports that President Trump has come in for criticism for not referring to the incident as an act of terror and for not explicitly calling out white supremacists, with his statement saying he condemns racism, violence and bigotry "on all sides."
Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison has been among those on the offensive.
UPDATE 11:30 a.m. President Trump has put out a longer statement in which he condemns violence from white supremacist groups.
Minnesota lawmakers have their say
Republicans in Congress have been more vociferous in their denouncement of the attack, with Colorado Republican Senator Cory Gardner tweeting: "Mr. President - we must call evil by its name. These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism."
Minnesota Republicans have been having their say, with 3rd District Rep. Erik Paulsen also referring to the attack as "domestic terrorism" and adding: "We must reject all forms of bigotry, by white supremacist groups or any group that attempts to spread hate and violence."
2nd District Rep. Jason Lewis and 6th District Rep. Tom Emmer tweeted their opposition to the rally in Charlottesville.
"No room for hate in US political discourse. Should all stand together condemning disgusting hate, racism & violence," Lewis tweeted.
As for Minnesota Democrats, Rep. Rick Nolan is among those speaking out.
"White supremacy and hate should have no place in US.," he said. "Today's violence is horrifying and we must confront bigotry that lurks in our society."
